Create Azure diagrams in Visio

With over twenty stencils and hundreds of shapes, the Azure Diagrams template in Visio gives you everything you need to create Azure diagrams for your specific needs. Design web apps, network topologies, Azure solutions, architectural diagrams, virtual machine configurations, operations, and much more.

Example: To provide cloud-based identity authentication, start with the "Integrating On-Prem AD domains with Azure domain" template to visualize the best practices for integrating on-premises Active Directory domains with Azure Active Directory.

Get started with Azure diagrams

The Azure diagrams template can be accessed in the Visio desktop app or on Visio for the web with a Visio Plan 1 or Visio Plan 2 subscription. Only with Visio Plan 2, you can install and use the Visio desktop app. Not sure what license you have? You can check what version you have.

Note: Azure diagram templates were renamed from Cloud and Enterprise templates in the subscription versions of Visio. See the section Azure diagram templates for Visio 2019, 2016, and older versions below for more info on how to get these diagrams if you're not subscribed to Visio.

Open an Azure Diagram template

  • Select File > New > Templates > Network > Azure Diagrams.

Azure diagram templates for Visio 2019, 2016, and older versions

If you have a non-subscription or older version of Visio, there are no Azure diagram (or Cloud and Enterprise) templates available. However, you can download Azure architecture icons, which enables you to create your own Azure diagrams with symbols and icons to represent your cloud system.
